Pros
It's very efficient to use. It streamlines the business process.

Cons
It's difficult to learn. It's not like Quickbooks, where you're sort of guided through steps. If you don't know exactly what outcome you're looking for, it's very easy to get confused.

Decent ERP System for the Construction Industry

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: GetApp

Viewpoint is our ERP system for better or worse. The functionality is there for just about everything needed in the construction industry; however, it's not always the most user-friendly. When Viewpoint introduces updates and there are bugs, it can take months for Viewpoint to fix them in a new release. If it's something you need to be fixed now, be prepared to pay Viewpoint to fix the problem.

Pros
Covers almost all aspects needed in the construction industry Highly customizable Easy to create custom reports Database isn't locked down

Cons
Viewpoint will find every way possible to charge you for support They have a bad habit of pushing out updates without thoroughly testing them

It's been solid to use at work and in my personal life there could be a few improvements but it's pretty damn good

Pros
It's very sufficient very easy to use can be frustrating from time to time and the main menu tends the lag

Cons
Takes up a ton of data and a lot of storage on my phone to keep could have a little better organized main menu

Has Potential

Good support, great implementation, excellent integration into Vista.

Pros
The product has come a long way since the original version that just produced submittals. The integration for creating projects in TEAM directly from Vista has so far been seemless. Getting dashboard job cost information from Vista has also been a well received feature. Being able to tag markups on drawings and create Issues on the fly is also a great tool.

Cons
TEAM has the potential to be great. There are other very similar products on the market that much stronger feature set. No reason TEAM couldn't easily step up to their level, especially now that Trimble is the owner. It was a very hard decision for us, do we go with Procore and get all the features we need now, but at a higher price and buggy integration, or do we go with TEAM, which has an excellent integration and is cost effective and hope that one day they complete the package. We chose to wait it out with TEAM.
